If I were to add my two cents, then I would vote for the mahogany cc. If you make a rugged boot in a rugged material such as CC, then you might as well be consequent and do it in a "rugged" color IMHO.

I see your pov, I think in a lighter color the stitching becomes more prominent.

Yes, that is true. That's something I didn't think about. Then why not go chestnut, like mine? smile.gif the stitching will probably be even more prominent on regular calf, than on CC.

Were the shoes seconds or on sale? The only time I received dark green boxes was on either situations that I mentioned; light green boxes for full retail shoes/boots.

An almond cc dover was on the horizon and would still be willing to do that as well. Nevis is basically a dover boot but i am open to other options.

Anyone have experience with the Delapre calf available on the Dover?

beautiful template but especially beautiful colour of strings!

No, I don't think thats it. I have shoes that were seconds and/or sale shoes that have light colored boxes and vice versa... Any other ideas?

Agreed. Have a pair of the Halifax from Leffot. Very soft.

The repairs come in the dark green boxes, but that obviously is not it!

Doubtful - I've never been able to use any discount for them.

Doubtful for the 40% off card but I did buy a pair of Galways during the last corporate sale.
